A reader shared this creepy story of strange events in his Anchorage apartment. The tale originally appeared on an Alaskan website, but perhaps you’ll enjoy it as well…
Historic brothels, like theaters, always seem to have a resident ghost or two. Here are five former brothels haunted by the working women of days gone by.
The Dumas Brothel
For 92 years, the women of The Dumas Brothel in Butte, MT (above) served the community’s hard-working miners and helped the business become America’s longest-running house of prostitution. Though the brothel closed its doors in 1982, the property’s current owners believe at least a few working women remain. Eerie events at the old brothel include falling mirrors, touches from unseen hands, and a shaking bed. The Haunted Collector team investigated The Dumas for an episode of the show and reportedly contacted the spirit of a former madam named Sarah.

Rawls Restaurant, Enterprise
Original owner Captain Japheth Rawls reportedly lurks around the cellar of the historic Rawls Restaurant, spooking waitresses with his sudden presence. Mischievous spirits in the kitchen steal utensils or bang on pots and pans. Guests and employees also report hearing children laughing and playing, even when children clearly aren’t around.
